Knowledge Representation must take account of a not much developed aspect in the theories about acquisition, transmission and manipulation of knowledge: dynamicity. The aim of the workshop is to discuss knowledge dynamic logical models.

Topics of interest of the ISELL2012 include, but are not limited to:

 *   Logic and argumentation theory
 *   Dialogues and Game Theoretical Semantics
 *   Formal semantics
 *   Models and science
 *   Abduction  in social sciences
 *   Abduction and the emergence of new scientific concepts
 *   Diagrammatic reasoning
 *   Dynamic Epistemic logic
 *   The Role of fictionality in sciences
 *   Constructive type theoretical semantics and grammar
 *   Dynamic approaches to the semantics of  natural language

Languages: portuguese, english, spanish

Apologies for cross posting,

Submissions are invited for next year's IEEE SSCI Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Health Assessment and Monitoring (http://tinyurl.com/CIHAM2013).


Public health measures such as better nutrition, greater access to medical care, improved sanitation, and more widespread immunization, have produced a rapid decline in death rates in all age groups. Since there is no corresponding decline in birth rates, however, the average age of population is increasing exponentially. If we want health services to keep up with such monotonic growth, we need to automatize as much as possible the way patients access the health-care system, in order to improve both its service quality and timeliness. Barriers to use health related quality of life (HRQoL) measuring systems include the time needed to complete the forms and the need for staff to be trained to understand the results. An ideal system of health assessment needs to be clinically useful, timely, sensitive to change, culturally sensitive, low burden, low cost, involving for the patient, and built into standard procedures. The main aim of this CICARE-13 special session is to examine the new frontiers of computational intelligence in health assessment and monitoring by proposing novel techniques in fields such as e-health, web health informatics, and e-health promotion, in order to improve the health-care of individuals using information and communication technology.


CIHAM aims to provide an international forum for researchers in the field of e-health to share information on their latest investigations and their applications both in academic research areas and industrial sectors. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• HRQoL measuring systems
• Sustainability of health systems
• Patient-reported outcomes measures
• Health web services and semantics
• Personalization of health applications and data input via the Web
• Engaging individuals and communities in services provided via the Web
• Patient physio-emotional sensitivity measurement
• Patient opinion mining
• Future directions of health services using the Web
• E-health challenges


• October 10th, 2012: Due date for Special Session papers
• January 5th, 2013: Notification of paper acceptance to authors
• February 5th, 2013: Camera-ready of accepted papers
• February 5th, 2013: Early registration
